Latest Mustang
« on: 30 November 2017, 19:15:13 »

This has received some styling changes inside and out.The 5.0L now has more PS's[whatever they are]the smaller engine may also have this increase too.Again the 5.0L gains a 10 speed auto box and has settings for normal,sport+ and track,there are also two further programmable modes the first of which Ford call Mymode where the owner/driver can "tailor" the car to their own preferences.The second is called Drag mode which optimises the car for the drag strip :o obviously no one is going to choose this mode while waiting for the lights to change on the local high street ::) ::)

Have driven the 5 litre Mustang in the USA  it was great not bad on fuel either, for the price they are I reckon they are very good value.

I'd find them a lot more appealing if they weren't so ugly. Too much 'design' on a car that needs 50mm sectioned out of the body.


I can't argue with the performance for the price, although I do think there should have been a bigger price gap between the 4 and 8 cylinder cars.

I love Mustang's and last year I saw a brand new 5.0 V8 in red in Sainsbury's car park, then I have occasionally seen it again going around. :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

I just wish...........and the mpg is not much different than my 3.2 (apparently).  Oh well, dream on! ::) ::) ::) ::)

Do it, Lizzie. They don't cost the Earth.

Just don't bother with the terminally dreary the 4 pot Mustang.  :-* :-* :-* :-*

There not that much more than a Focus RS!

But, with still questionable handling (given the power), horrific safety numbers and styling that would not look out of place on an Essex council estate.....its a bit of a Marmite car  :y

Maybe he would like a drag race against my canal boat fuelled, sludge pump driven, poverty spec, big black pussy?

Yes, a sub six second, 145mph, 300bhp car is really dreary. Makes me wonder why they bothered with the basic spec V8 which is barely any better.

Its a cheap way to a proper muscle V8, but the Mustang doesn't float my boat.  A colleague has one (and older one, mind, LHD as well), and it suits him, as he's into all things American, and what is more Yankee than a Mustang :)

He lives within the M25, so rarely uses it, so cares not what MPG is (and hadn't the faintest idea when I asked him).

Rumour has it the 2.3 litre 4 pot as used in the Focus RS is a bit of an asthmatic old lump.

Whatever next?. A 1 litre 3 pot Mustang. :-\
